Stronger Than You Think

It’s taken me a while to get a live video worthy of posting, but thanks to the superb videographic talent of our good friend (and tour host for two days), Mason Taylor of a’tris, we finally got a good one last night (11/14/10) at our Traveling Troubadours tour stop at The Living Room in New York City.

“Stronger Than You Think” is near and dear to my heart, and it’s my hope that it reaches yours as well. Watch, listen, enjoy, share, comment. I’d love to hear what it means to you. I’m always blown away by how a song that starts as a conversation in my own mind expands to reach so many. When songs like this come to – and then from – me, I’m humbled to be the conduit.

Lyrics are below…in case you’re interested.


“Stronger Than You Think”
(by amy courts | [c]2010 amalia musica)

This isn’t what I want
This isn’t what I want for you
But it is what it is
It’s not the way you planned
But it’s what you find in hand
And you have got to do the best you can

And I know it’s gonna break you down
It’s gonna hurt like hell
Before it makes a sound
And I know it reaches everything
But you are stronger than you think you are
Right now

This isn’t what I want
This isn’t what I want for you
But it is what it is
It’s not an easy road
And no one wants to go
But it’s the only way for you my friend


And it’s gonna hurt you more
Before it starts to feel okay
But it won’t be this way
No, it won’t be this way
For good
